Alcohol and Ethanol Disposal Company​

Our commitment to responsible alcohol and ethanol disposal and our dedication to 100% landfill diversion is what sets us apart. With more than 200 processors nationwide, we are able to ensure your company’s waste is disposed of properly and carefully. 

We specialize in the recycling and disposal of:

Alcohol Beverages

Alcoholic Beverages both in consumer packaging and bulk generated anywhere along the supply chain. Examples, but not limited to:


• Distilled Spirits

• Wine & Beer Keg Decanting

• Can Cocktails


Hand Sanitizers

Hand sanitizers are a major source of ethanol because they contain glycerin, which is an alcohol compound. Glycerin can be converted into either high-octane gasoline or lower octane butanol which makes it ideal to be recycled into fuel grade ethanol.

Alcohol-based Health, Beauty and Cosmetic Products

The process of recycling alcohol-based health, beauty and cosmetic products is significantly more complex than that of recycling other materials. This is due to the chemicals involved in the manufacturing of these products and their potential damaging nature if released into the environment. As a result, we take the greatest care when managing these products.


These products are repurposed as feedstock for ethanol and utilized to create renewable fuels and alcohol products. Consumer packaged products are separated from the liquids and all of the materials are recycled.

Alcohol product recalls

Alcohol product recalls

If you're a manufacturer of alcohol-based products, you are required by law to carry out product recalls if your product has been identified as faulty, unsafe, or otherwise defective. We can help with this process safely and legally.

Fuel-grade Alcohol

Fuel-grade Alcohol

As an oxygenate or octane stabilizer, fuel ethanol is mostly utilized for low-concentration mixing with motor gasoline. In large concentrations, it is able to power alternative-fuel vehicles that have been specially adapted for its use.

Industrial Ethanol

Industrial Ethanol

Our solutions allow us to handle all types of industrial ethanol from start to finish: from transport and delivery through primary recovery operations (such as distillation) up until final disposal at our secure facilities where we process all materials into reusable.

What Is Biofuel?

Biofuel is a type of renewable energy source derived from microbial, plant, or animal materials.


Examples of biofuels include ethanol (often made from corn in the United States and sugarcane in Brazil), biodiesel (sourced from vegetable oils and liquid animal fats), green diesel (derived from algae and other plant sources), and biogas (methane derived from animal manure and other digested organic material).


Biofuels can be solid, liquid, or gaseous. They are most useful in the latter two forms as this makes it easier to transport, deliver, and burn cleanly.
